Puff pastry can be prepared independently, but if it is not "your horse", or just do not want to waste time on this procedure, you can take a good frozen. Defrost it at room temperature. As a rule, 20-30 minutes are enough for this, depending on the packaging.
On a floured surface, roll out the dough to the desired size. Keep in mind, too thin layer should not be. Bake cakes. Let cool and cut in half. All we need 5 cakes. Therefore, if you initially sheet dough – use it wisely.
Chicken fillet, twist through a meat grinder or in a blender. Then, get a souffle, and this consistency is very suitable for us. Add eggs, salt, pepper, spices to the ready minced meat and knead well.
Heat a frying pan with vegetable oil. Arbitrarily chopped mushrooms sent to it is fried. Salt and pepper mushrooms should be immediately, as soon as they gave water. Water is gone – add the butter and fry stirring for 2-4 minutes.
Grate carrots on a large grater. Onions, cut into medium-sized cubes. Fry them separately. Much to fry any onions, no carrots is not necessary.
Begin to collect the cake. On the first cake spread fried chicken. On the second – carrot. The third cake is covered with onions. The fourth will be covered with mushrooms and on top of another layer. All the cakes a little crush hands.
Prepare the cream. Beat the cream well. Interfere with them, silicone spatula, cream cheese. And cover the resulting cream snack cake with chicken. On top you can dust the crumb from the cakes, if you have left. Then get the illusion of cake "Napoleon", only with an unusual filling.
In this recipe, instead of fresh mushrooms can be used pickled. In this case, keep in mind that the whole mushrooms in the Bank is much saturated, so give preference to them. Thus, you will add some piquancy to the pie.
If desired, you can combine in one layer carrots and onions. In season, well add to the snack cake with chicken zucchini. Cut them into very thin slices with a peeler and fry a little in a pan. 15-20 seconds is enough. They will acquire the necessary softness. Thus, you can diversify your layer cake.
Want to get a slight kick – RUB on each layer, except the upper crust, a little cheese. He will give malleability and additional taste. Or mix chicken with any soft cheese. In this case, just take the cream without various additives (mushrooms, bacon, ham), which offer manufacturers. An admixture of excess, artificial taste in a snack cake with chicken is not exactly needed.
Let the cake infuse for 2-3 hours at room temperature and refrigerate overnight. So it is well soaked. And surprise your guests.
